One thing lacking on the Classic is a sloped flange Breitling watch

Both models have similar applied Arabic numeral hour markers and slightly recessed chronograph subdials. One thing lacking on the Classic is a sloped flange ring, which the normal Chronograph does have. The flange ring is a Swiss Replica Breitling Cosmonaute Watches For Sale I personally like and helps the dial look larger, and of course cleaner. Not having a flange ring allows the bezel to be a bit more burly, and results in a dial that is probably intentionally more cluttered and instrument-like versus formal in style. While the standard Breitling has a monochromatic dial, the Classic has sporty red accents. I am extremely happy to see that the dial does not contain a tachymeter or some other useless scale that no one uses.
For most watch lovers, the biggest difference between the two Breitling watches won't be the extra millimeter in size or the different case design, but rather the movement. The Breitling contains an Breitling which is a base Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph which is reworked a bit by Breitling.
The Breitling Classic however contains the Breitling in-house made caliber 89361 automatic chronograph (with a flyback complication). Both watches have a bi-compax subdial array, but the caliber 89361 uses the upper dial to indicate both the minutes http://www.goodgoodwatches.co.uk/replica-cartier-calibre-de-cartier.html and hours (with two hands) - making it possible to measure up to 12 hours versus 30 minutes. It is true that the base 7750 is able to measure 12 hours, but Breitling removes the hour counter for style purposes for these watches.
Also, the Chronograph Classic has a date window, while the standard Chronograph has the date feature not visible on the dial. The Breitling also has a longer power reserve of 68 hours.
From a style perspective there is an argument to be made about each of the dials, but collectors will no doubt enjoy the extra functionality of the Classic version of the Breitling. At launch there will be four versions of the new cartier Santos replica. Either steel or 18k red gold with a silver-plated or ardoise dial. Each comes with a case-fitted Santoni alligator strap. Really a solid collection, and certainly something to consider if you've been eying a Breitling for a while.
